    I'm not used to having a project thread, I've forgotten to update it!

    I recoded the MK60 DSC module to M3 specs for LSD, oversteer, and gear torque control settings. WAY better! More detail here: http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...730#post452730

    And I replaced my O2 sensors, the bank 2 sensor was clearly fouled, it looked aweful. Now my O2 voltages are consistent between banks.



    Also, my fuel pump was getting tired and wasn't keeping up with the TS2 kit so I upgraded to the M3 fuel pump, and installed the baffle fixture while I was in there too

    Tie rod day. Took me like 30 minutes to do both. Nice easy job. Alignment is scheduled for wednesday.



    I didn't think the old tie rods were that bad, but the steering feels a lot more stable.

    So this year, at about 110k, I've completed the following refresher/maintenance items:
    Fuel pump
    Fuel filter
    Tie rods
    O2 sensors
    Oil filter housing gasket
    Belt tensioner
    FCABs
    Front and rear diff bushings
    Rear subframe bushings
    Upper inner rear control arm bushings
    Valve cover gasket

    Did the RTABs, outer rear control arm bushings, vanos, and spark plugs last year.

    Only thing left to do is front control arms, sways, and shocks/struts and then I'll let my bank account heal. Maybe

    Top notch. All the threads came protected with plastic caps, all joints are real nice and tight and pre-greased. I think Lemforder supplies the OEM units, my stock rods had the same red ring around the rubber boot on the rod end (its just dirty in the picture).

    I thought the M3 pump used clip in fuel connectors not banjo bolts?

    The M3 fuel line uses a clip on the end of it, but the hose barb on the fuel pump does not. In fact, the top of the M3 fuel pump looks EXACTLY like our stock fuel pump in every way, except its blue rather than white. The hose barbs are exactly the same.
